What is best exercise machine for muscle and cardio workout

What do you think is an all around good exercise machine for combined cardio and muscle definition/development? Not interested in bulking up or body building.

Is it Elliptical, rowing machine, or other?

No such thing - aerobic and muscle building activities require different parameters and cannot be done at the same time

Start lifting weights (don't worry, most people don't have the genetics to bulk anyway) and pick aerobic activities you enjoy

As Mitch says, that's why, when you walk into a gym, there are 100 different machines. All do different things. Weights and machines help tone, but nothing beats aerobics.
